Den Bosch

Just in case you ever come to Holland you must surely pay a visit to Den Bosch. For not only is it a lovely city but you can discover it from different sides.
We visited Den Bosch this summer and made a city walk to see the historical places. But what we found most amazing is that you can see Den Bosch from a very different perspective when taking a boat-tour on the river Binnendieze that runs through much of the centre. The tour is made with small open boats.

A little history:

Den Bosch is nicknamed the 'marsh dragon' for its position as a powerful city on the formerly swampy banks of the river Dieze, which made it hard to conquer for centuries. As space was limited inside the city-walls many buildings, including the town hall and St. Catharina's church, were built over the river, which was gradually tamed and renamed Binnendieze.
